Visiting Campus

Where to Stay

Are you visiting Northern Virginia or coming to campus this fall? Throughout the year, we offer a variety of discounts at local hotels for families. For individual reservations, visit marriott.com and enter our corporate code “G57” to take advantage of our special Mason rates! If you are visiting the weekend of Nov. 12-15, you can receive a discounted rate by staying in one of our room blocks at Marriott partner properties. Visit MasonFamily.gmu.edu/Where-To-Stay for more details.

Navigation & Parking

No matter where you’re coming from, we can help with your navigation needs! Visit Info.gmu.edu/Campus-Maps-And-Directions/Fairfax-Campus-Directions for campus map resources, instructions on how to get to campus from local airports, Metro information, and campus construction updates.

If you plan to drive and park on campus, be advised that only visitor parking options are available. Visitors can also park in the garages at $3/hr-$15/day or buy daily permits for $9 for general lots and $6 for Lot L and Lot K. Free weekend Lot K passes are also available online.
